One response to “The Forgotten Girl by Heather Chapman

  1. I loved the realistic portrayal of a young female immigrant and the harsh struggles she endured as she fought for a new life in America. It really made me appreciate the sacrifices of my ancestors and those who were brave and kept seeking for a better life for themselves and their families. This book is based on the author’s own ancestors, which really made the story come to life. Even though Stella faces one one challenge after another, there is an underlying feeling of hope that keeps the book from being depressing. I enjoyed the sweet romance, but the main focus is Stella’s journey and how her strength grows through the overcoming and enduring of life’s trials. Recommend to fans of historical fiction!
